Car Seat Covers and the Fabric Options Available

If you are considering buying car seat covers, you may be a bit overwhelmed at the multiple fabric options that are available. The aim of this article is to help explain the different seat cover options in order to help you make your decision.

Car seat covers can be an excellent investment when chosen carefully. Here is a brief overview of seat cover fabrics offered. Whichever you choose, make sure that they are quality OEM fabrics backed by soft foam for added comfort and durability.

Microfiber: Microfiber is an extremely comfortable fabric. Not only is it extremely UV fade resistant, but it is also highly stain resilient, too!

Leather: Genuine cowhide leather seat covers offer luxurious look and feel. Many people that buy their cars with the standard cloth opt to buy after market quality OEM seat covers, a very cost effective way to have leather. With a custom made seat cover, you won’t even notice that your car wasn’t purchased with leather seats.

Leatherette: Synthetic leather offers the same luxury as leather, but at a much lower cost. It can be hot in the summer and cold in the winter, so make sure that the seat covers offer small pinholes in the center sections of the seat covers. This allows the seat covers to breathe, making it a very pleasant material selection.

Neoprene: Neoprene is the same material used in wet suits for scuba diving. As a seat cover option, neoprene is extremely durable, UV protected and extremely water resistant.

Endura: Quality OEM Endura material is completely waterproof and very easy to clean. This is a very popular choice for pet travel, fleet vehicles, work trucks or for families with small children. Pet accidents don’t leak through and they actually resist pet hair. Lastly, this fabric option is known for maintaining an even temperature. It is a perfect way to avoid hot seats in the summer and cold ones in the winter.

Velour: Velour is the standard manufactured material that comes in new cars with cloth seats. It is also very durable and fade resistant as a seat cover option, but many people like that it is usually priced the lowest of all fabric options.

Sheepskin: Sheepskin seat covers are typically 100% choice mouton, a dense wool that is about 1 inch in length. Although these have a shorter life expectancy that other seat cover options, they offer an unmatched luxurious feel and undeniable comfort.
